johnson and marco rubio, weren't prepared for this hearing. they didn't dig hard, didn't ask good questions. john mccain gave a speech and. >> right. >> paul: he's got authority and rand paul gave a speech, but nobody really dug in to answer those questions and that's one of the reasons she emerged, i think, with unscathed. >> exactly and the democrats have the time sort of said hillary clinton looking toward 2016 where she'll probably run. >> paul: well, no question about that, i think she will. that doesn't bode well at all for the chuck hagel hearings, republicans talking they'll give him a tough time as a nom fee for defense secretary. >> what they really failed to do here, paul, not just have a response or press her on the big things and move her off the talking points on the questions that you just asked, but also that bigger question about putting and placing benghazi within the scope of a broader failure of foreign policy. and that's going to have to be what they're going to do if they're going to talk about chuck hagel. highlight the obama failure in this area and that ch
style with marco rubio who has taken a very different track. he has the potential to rebrand the gop. what bobby jindal is doing is a good sound bite and there's some things he's saying that are true but ultimately he's not doing anything to move the ball. >> i haven't read the whole speech. mark simone, are republicans stupid and is it wise for bobby jindal to come out and say that? >> i think it was him trying to get a little hyperbolic, trying to get attention for himself, was clumsy in his wording. i like jindal, he's a good leader, he's not presidential material. he has this middle management appearance. when ronald reagan spoke, the whole thing changed. when bill clinton showed up, the democratic brand came back. it's just a matter of time before some great communicator comes along and can say this in the right way. >> jimmy, i think -- i know mr. obama is sitting high, though he got whacked by the federal court today but i think democrats can be pretty stupid, too. if they reject entitlement reform, if they say we're just going to raise taxes like this budget deal, just taxes
and marco rubio were not prepared for this hearing. they didn't dig hard and ask good questions. john mccain gave a speech. he has got authority and rand paul gave a speech. but nobody really dug in to answer those questions. that's one one of the reasons she emerged, i think, with up scathe. the democrats have to pay -- hillary clinton looking towards 2016 whether she will probably run. >> no question about that. i think shehe will. that doesn't bode well at all for the chuck hale friends. going to give him a tough time nominee for 70s secretary. >> no, and what they really failed to do here, paul, was not just have a response or presser on these big things. move her off the talking points and the that you just asked. t bigger question putting and placing benghazi scope of a broader failure of foreign policy. that's going to have to be what they are going to do if they are going to talk about chuck hagel is highlight the the obama's failures in this area and talk about chuck hagel is going to be yes man for that strategy. if they are not able to do that in a hearing like this which they hav
as senator marco rubio, the florida republican, also working on immigration reform. they are trying to get ahead of president obama who is going to be in nevada tomorrow talking about his immigration reform proposal, bringing back his 2011 and maybe adding more details on that. now, like the president, the senators, the gang of eight senators here, want to produce a pathway to citizenship, and their proposals would include a registration and probation program to allow illegal imgrants to stay and live and work in this country with a green card, provided they paid their back taxes and paid a penalty here and then got in line for the process for the legal citizenship application. they also want to improve border security. that's a big component of the plan as well as tracking legal immigrants, whether or not they leave when they are supposed to. they also want to strengthen the employment verification system, and they want to -- create a green card system for the top foreign college students here who get advanced degrees in math and the sciences. now, the white house did not shoot this down
of conservatives. marco rubio of florida, john mccain and lindsay graham were all out there saying the time has come to deal with this in a comprehensive way. >> we heard this before. i have video of chuck schumer saying this will be the last amnesty. we will do it again. look at the debates in 2006. this is the only time. marco rubio said he was not going to support a path to citizenship. they said they were not going to support the program. we have a labor market and we have job displacement and see a lot of americans who were struggling. how is this by giving amnesty and setting off a tidal wave and going to help the average american get a job and better wages and improved working conditions. how will it help the fiscal situation? the bill is a skeletal draft. these guys go into it holding arm and arm like they are going in the tunnel of love. it's like they have been in a lion's den. when you get down to the details, what you see is all the enforcement provisions and things we have on the books anyway. if the president would enforce the law, it's a big bill with a prospect of enforcement wh
a dozen years ago, but some newborn faces like marco rubio who of course is an up and coming conservative who has made this issue one of his own, because of the fact that he too is concerned about the way the republican party is perceived in the latino community. the important thing to keep in mind is this is just the beginning. there are some very divisive issues within the immigration concept that have not yet been worked out. for example, you mentioned at the beginning that this whole idea makes a path to citizenship contingent on border security. they've not worked out yet what the so-called metrics are for how they know the border is secure. that is very, very important. and the devil is, to use a cliche, in the details there. also goes for how they detyfine path to citizenship. >> jessica, you're getting some new information about the white house, the president is planning to propose, maybe as early as tomorrow, when he's in las vegas. >> the difference between the president's plan and what the senate has proposed is the path to citizenship for the 11 million immigrants who are here
marco rubio probably touched on it. i support and agree with the principles he laid out as far as earned legalization. making sure people don't cut in line but fixing the problem. we did reform in '86 and again in '96. it's a system that's broken that needs fixing. and many of us who have been involved in this issue over the years. immigration is a good thing. that's what america is. it's a melting pot. we think this is good. we need to make sure it works. i think there are republicans and democrats, many of us are talking to each other, that can come together with a good solution to make sure that this problem is fixed. once and for all. and i think those rubio principles do a really good job of adhering to the founding principles, respecting the rule of law, and respecting those who came here for a better life. >> and do you see that getting done this year? >> i do. that's one of the areas where i feel that i think the president has a big speech coming up. the question that many of us are asking, republicans and democrats, is he looking to play politics or does he want to solve the pro
and three other americans. senator marco rubio of florida was one of the three that asked sensible questions about lapses in security at the consulate. >> were you ever asked to participate in any sort of internal or interagency meeting before this attack with regard to the deteriorating security situation in libya? >> with specific security requests, they didn't come to me, i had no knowledge of them. >> for the most part, though, republicans seemed to obsess over the comments of the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice over double talk, alleged coverup and whether rice purposely underplayed the terrorist connection and underscored protests to an anti-muslim film. >> we were told there were protests and an assault sprang out of that and that was not the fact and the american people could have known that within days and they didn't know that. >> with all due respect, the fact is we had four dead americans. was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they'd they'd go kill some americans. what difference at this point does it make? it is our job
base, by the tea party. marco rubio is on the same senate foreign relations committee and had a very different tone and different question. i think he very smartly decided he did not want the narrative to be a 2016 hillary versus rubio. he wanted it to be about the substance. >> good to see you both. larry, sorry i mispronounced your name. thank you. forgive me. appreciate it. hillary clinton might say hello again soon. take a look at hillary clinton throughout the years. and here is what else we are working on this hour. >> all this cold weather may have you looking for ways to warm up. but before you try swigging a beer consider this. having alcohol in your system can increase your chances of hypothermia. plus a new report says binge drinking can cause more liver and brain damage than casual drinking. >>> manti ta'o is speaking out and the women he thought was connectic ke kekua speaks out. >>> we hear from one lawmaker taking the matter into her own hands. her plan to curb gun violence. this is "newsroom" and it is happening now. [ male announcer ] truth is theraflu doesn't treat
making about future, you know, it is almost sickening to do this, 2016 and watching her and marco rubio. will secretary clinton run? you should be thinking about other things. >> there are four dead americans here. that has not happened in 20-30 years. we deserve answers. families deserve answers. instead, all we got was politics. dagen: most lawmakers do not how to cross-examine a lawyer. >> most of them are lawyers. go figure. dagen: good to see you. thank you so much, monica. connell: the stock market is looking pretty good. if you are a smoker and you live in oregon, light up now because soon, you will not be able to do so. the state of oregon is posing a bill to make cigarettes illegal without a doctor's prescription. if they pass eight, violators of the new law would face a penalty and a year in prison. you think google has your back? you may want to think again. google complied 88% of the time over 20,000 requests made by governments around the world. request four data off now by 70% since google started the report. dell, this is some story about michael dell. he is buying a 7873
, on the republican side, senator mccain, marco rubio, coming out with a plain before the president unveils his. tomorrow the president is going to jet to las vegas to unveil his immigration plan. these senators putting out a marker. here are the three big points of this plan. and this is going to be the biggest debate on immigration in six years since back in 2007 when president bush's plan was deeted. he defeated. here are the three big paths. it will provide a path to legal citizenship for the people in the country illegally. that's dependent on increasing border security before that happened and some other procedural safeguards. and three, there's going to be a little faster path to citizenship for seasonal agricultural workers and for young people who are brought to the country illegally. so that's the nod to the dream act that's so popular on the left. >> andrea, what chances do a major plan like this have of getting through congress? >> i think better than ever. and the real sadness here is that john mccain, lindsey graham and others are totally behind this now. if they had been able to
. on the republican side, john mccain of arizona, lindsey graham of south carolina, marco rubio of florida. pretty interesting group; right? pretty interesting political spectrum represented by these six senators. for the last few months we've been sitting down and working out a statement of principles about immigration reform. and today we unveiled those principles. we have a lot of work to do. we still have to write the law and we still have to bring it to the senate to be debated and to be passed. i don't assume for a minute that we're going to have every senator supporting it on both sides of the aisle. that would be too much to consider or to ask. but i know from listening to the speeches that were given by senator sessions of alabama, senator vitter of louisiana, they have many questions that they want to ask about how we approach immigration reform. so let me try, if i can, to speak to some of the basics that are included in our effort. first, when i listened to the senator from louisiana, he said that president obama had done little to enforce immigration laws. i think you will find for th
, senate majority caucus, and rising leaders such as senator marco rubio, and other key decision-makers, pushing for action to the fiscal cliff. during those meetings we made it known that cities have already led on deficit reduction. mayors know how to balance budgets. [applause] we do it every day. we do it every year. through this recession we made the tough decisions that washington has been unwilling to make. while we also maintained key investments that strengthened our metro economies. we have suffered dramatic cuts from washington. we have seen the community development block grant drastically reduced. we have sacrificed for the greater good, and we made it known now that washington must do its job without simply passing the buck down to america's cities and local taxpayers. [applause] we face a very serious threat to one of our historic tools that we use for investing in infrastructure, tax-exempt financing. we had not acted, we would've seen the erosion of this most asic federal local partnership. up to new year's day, mayors were actively fighting for a budget deal tha
. this is the most diverse generation in american history. i think what marco rubio is doing now, going around to grassroots republicans around the country, talking to talk radio about what it is going to take to modernize the way republicans think about immigration, and think about reaching out to the hispanic population, which is, you know, it is -- over 40%. the millennial generation is 40% nonwhite. and the majority -- minority in that group is hispanic. we have to think, how are we going to connect to this generation, how are we going to get back to what george bush did in 2004, earn 30% of that vote. let's get back to that place. >> it has been on a downside through mccain and romney. probably believed the first option is something on immigration, in this congress. john, to you on jindal specifically. is he just positioning himself for 2016 with this type of rhetoric? >> yes. >> simple answer. >> that's the simple true answer. i mean, look, part of what is disingenuous about the speech, he spends a lot of time running down washington, saying -- running down the federal dwo government. he
-- with marco rubio on a plan that you want to put forward. tell us about it. >> well, there are a number of plans going on right now, and i think it's actually an exciting opportunity for bipartisan work. one of the things that a group of us is working on is the h1v visa issue, and this is scientists, engineers, people who are really literally banned from our country. sometimes they get trained in our country, and then we literally send them off to start the next high-tech company or the next google in india or someplace else. it gives us the opportunity -- >> he always says when somebody gets an mba, we should staple a green card on the back of it because they go back, let's say, to new delhi and they create an i.t. company that hires 2,000 people there instead of 2,000 people in north carolina. it's lunacy. >> this country was built with immigrants with their ideas and inventions. one of them starts an invention and then they hire tons of other people. >> senator, you agree with that, right? >> they're letting canada do this. they have opened it up and we need to open it up here. >> i
national committee, i knew that she went against the machine in florida and openly supported marco rubio over charlie crist, something she was taken to task for. we all now know sharon was right. [applause] she traveled throughout her state to develop -- to republicans of ethnicity before diversity was a popular word. sharon has fought for those who did not have a voice within the republican party, and as a conservative woman i tried to keep up with her. i tried to do things that emulate everything she was doing. she has inspired many to work harder, smarter, and more effectively, especially those who wanted to get republicans elected. since becoming co-chair, she has been to more than 43 states and she has included in her stops large cities and small cities, including a small town in washington where i'm from, where we grow the best apples, cherries, pears, and winery's. she has shown that every state and county is important to the success of electing republicans. she has visited victory centers and even joined the volunteers of phone banking and doorbell ing. she helped encourage women
